The Bonnie Plants Third Grade Cabbage Program~ Sign up today & help inspire the next generation of gardeners

When I was in the third-grade a tiny cabbage seedling forever transformed my life and sent me on the most remarkable path. That cabbage seedling was a part of the Bonnie Plants Third Grade Cabbage Program, a free program designed to inspire the next generation of gardeners. And inspire it did!

I am excited to share The Bonnie Plants 3rd Grade Cabbage Program is relaunching in 2021. I would personally like to invite third-grade teachers and parents across the country to sign up! It is a hands-on science lesson, students will learn about backyard ecology and plant life cycles by growing colossal cabbages and reaping hefty harvests. Students also vie for “Best in State” bragging rights — with a $1,000 scholarship awarded to one student in each participating state and perhaps be a life-changing moment for a third grader as it was for me.

Bonnie Plants has designed the 3rd Grade Cabbage program with COVID-19 safety in mind. With the added stress of learning during the pandemic – getting outside to connect with gardening is more important than ever for the physical and mental well-being of students.

Participating in the 3rd Grade Cabbage Program is completely free! Simply click on the link below to register your class or student by March 1st, 2021. The cabbages will be delivered by mail during your selected shipping window. After you’ve signed up, Bonnie Plants will follow up with instructions just in time for planting, growing, and harvesting, and a ton of other useful resources to help students learn and succeed along the way.

Happy Growing,

Pirates’ Patch Community Garden ~ West Carrollton High School, Ohio

Since 2016 students, age 14 to 19, at West Carrollton High have been growing with Katie’s Krops. They are having a tremendous impact on their community by sharing their harvest with St. Vincent de Paul Homeless Shelter.

“Not only have our students gained self-confidence, pride, and community service, they have gained a life long skill and can grow to produce for themselves and their families. We have learned the power of a seed. We gain pride and a sense of wellbeing,” shared Judi Brooks, Garden Coordinator.

Their garden is a place where connections are made when working side by side; students and adults share life stories and gain insight from one and other. A listening ear can open many doors. You never know what each day in the garden grows.  

THIS PROGRAM IS CLOSED FOR 2021 Grow the Seeds of Hope & Change ~ Our New Seed Sharing Program for Children Out of School

THIS PROGRAM IS CLOSED FOR 2021

In these challenging times, Katie’s Krops is spreading the seeds of hope and change. Let’s plant the seeds of change and help our neighbors in need as we enter unchartered territory. We want to share our seeds with children across the country. Now is an excellent time for our Southern friends to get outside and start gardening, and for our Northern friends to start seeds indoors.

We will send seeds to 400 people who email Katie@KatiesKrops.com to help us grow a better tomorrow. Please include your full name and mailing address when you email Katie@KatiesKrops.com with the subject line “Seeds of Change.” Gardening is an excellent activity for children who are out of school. We can be the change!

Please note, due to restrictions we cannot ship seeds outside of the United States.

Together we can grow hope! All it takes is one seed.
